Archdiocese of Boston: Gate of Heaven (South Boston) now searchable

Gate of Heaven Church from The Catholic Churches of Boston and its vicinity… by William Augustine Leahy, 1892

Today we’ve added three new volumes to Massachusetts: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston Records, 1789-1920 from Gate of Heaven in South Boston. This update adds over 7,600 records and over 11,400 names to search.

Gate of Heaven Church is located on the corner of E. 4th and I Streets in South Boston. It grew out of Sts. Peter and Paul parish in 1862. In 1865 it became an independent parish. This parish continued to grow into the 20th century.

We’d like to thank Sam Sturgis for his help making this parish available online.

The new volumes are listed below:

Gate of Heaven (South Boston) Baptisms, 1913-1919
Gate of Heaven (South Boston) Baptisms, 1919-1920
Gate of Heaven (South Boston) Marriages, 1916-1920
